Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I remember one distributor I showed the film to, he was a friend of mine. He said, 'This film has nudity in it' like I had broken some rule or something. The code. And that's why I want this film to be popular. I want to break that stereotype that seems to be all over this country that animation and nudity do not go together." See more »

Trivia:

Turned down a 7-figure offer from The Walt Disney Company to animate Aladdin (1992) because any ideas he developed while under contract with them would become their intellectual property.

Trademark:

Many of the male characters in his cartoons are self-portraits

Star Sign:

Taurus
